Ouch. That happened to me about 12 years ago. I was able to talk to
the person who sent the card and nicely explain that I wasn't a
secretary. Unfortunately, the secretaries got mad, because they
thought I considered myself above them.

Jill has a point. I don't know who sent the card, but there's also the
thought that it was a secretary who decided you should get the card. People
high enough up the food chain might delegate the job to their secretary,
and since you were a newcomer, she might not be completely familiar with
who you are and what your job is, only that you're a new hire that spends
most of the day typing. Trying to "educate" the ostensible sender of the
card would only then antagonize the secretary who had the misunderstanding.

I'd try to find out more about who sent the card and why before doing
anything at all about it. Acting without more complete knowledge could end
up causing you a lot more trouble than just letting it pass ever will.

Have fun,

In God we trust; all others must provide data.
Opinions expressed are mine and mine alone.
If JCI had an opinion on this, they'd hire someone else to deliver it.
